BabyCakes NYC Downtown LA Location

I spent a wonderful afternoon at BabyCakes NYC's downtown LA location with the Los Angeles Cupcake Meetup group. Now I understand all the fuss about the mini desserts!

I've never been a cake fan, but I am a fan of any icing containing cream cheese. BabyCakes is a uniquely vegan bakery that sweetens primarily with agave nectar, so I wasn't sure what to expect. But the Carrot Cake Cupcake with Salted Caramel Icing (pictured here) stole my heart!

And since it was Claire's adoption anniversary, she got to run all my errands with me, including this one. The LA location has a lovely small patio out front that is just in front of but removed from the sidewalk, so it makes for great people watching without feeling like you'll be tripped over, or have your dog trampled by a bike.

The happy pink-and-white interior matches the friendliness of the employees, though the place was constantly packed. I had a great time meeting about five ladies through the meetup group. Tara, the organizer, did a nice job of making everyone feel welcome. This is definitely a great place for those on food-restricted diets.

Do you have a favorite cupcake bakery? Are you a cake person or an icing person? Please leave a comment on the blog!
